Adobe Generation Professional: User Experience Design (UX Design)


This five week User Experience Design (UX Design)” or “User Interface (UI) course aims to meet the needs of educators wishing to gain the skills required to understand UX Design.

User Experience design is one of the fastest growing design sectors and it encompasses a number of different skill sets which actually has little to do with traditional graphic design , but relies heavily on an understanding of users needs, identifying goals and creating basic outlines of designs so that a more traditional graphic or UI (user interface) designer can fill in those areas. The course kicks off on Monday, February 13 2017 and ends on Friday, March 31 2017.

Course Overview

In this course participants will start off examining the users needs and creating relevant documentation that allows a digital, interactive project to have a better fitting, functional, final design. Each week participants will identify key needs that will inform design decisions until the project is ready to be designed graphically as a user interface. In the final weeks of the course participants will create the UI design based on their UX conclusions from the previous weeks.
